Robert Kraft Charged in Prostitution Probe

Recommended Posts

This is disappointing and, on a personal level, pretty disgusting, but I think a lot of people are making a bit of a leap here insinuating that Kraft would be aware of the status of any of these women. Soliciting, versus being involved in human trafficking, are two very, very different things. Plus if you're going to apply the moral compass to Kraft how can you ignore some of the things Irsay has done? Seriously? That's the ultimate case of hypocrisy if you want to go there, but whatever.

 

I'm not happy. I don't condone it. But let's not make this more than it really is because, itself, it's bad enough. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jim, like many Americans, had an addiction to painkillers.  He wasn't participating in the sexual rape and assault of victims of human sex trafficking. Jim went to rehab, Jim paid his fines and had his suspension.  Jim didn't hurt anyone but himself.  What Kraft has allegedly taken part of is a MUCH greater level of crime than anything Jim or for that matter, Robert Irsay, has done.  At least that we know of.

Bill, Brady and Kraft sure have shady pasts when it comes to women.  That says more bout their character than any spygate and/or deflate gate incident. No moral compass for these men when it comes to their relationship with women.  Take what u want kind of mentality.

BB been divorced, because he lived and sleeper football.  (No real “issue” with woman)

 

Brady been married to Gizelle for ages and he broke up with Moynahan BEFORE he knew she was pregnant but has maintained a good relationship with her and his son.

 

Kraft before this was married to his wife for like 50 years till she died and it appears he has shown poor judgement here but again being a Jon is hardly an earth shattering offense. I know all the trafficking people will say “he must have” fact is right now all we know is he is charged as a common John something anyone else gets community service and MAYBE 30 days in jail for.

I remember years ago there was something with Kraft and another woman (while he was married).  I forget the story but it got a little press.

Bob asked how much to do it "the patriot way."

His lawyers say he couldnt possibly be guilty as , like Brady, Kraft tends to use deflated balls as well.

Questions that are too early to answer.

Kraft stays at the Breakers hotel. I heard some say here this place was in a rundown strip mall in a sleazy part of Jupiter 25 miles away in which its now known that he's made multiple visits there.

 

I can see not arranging a escort come to the Breakers because of secrecy.

But why pass up nice discreet hotels and other 'massage parlors' to come to this one? This one that is part of a sex slave probe?

 

It's going to be interesting if the girls here were underage. If so, was Kraft with a minor knowingly or not. Did he know the girls were forced to work there?

Again why did he pass up all the Hotels and other brothels along the way to visit this shady place?

:agree:

 

This mentality I'm reading today, about how it's not that bad, everyone does it, it's been around for years, he just got caught, blah blah blah

 

You know how best to not get caught in illegal activity....

 

Easy

 

Don't do it.

Patriots fans have sunk to a new low: shrugging this off with the "who cares what two consenting adults do?" line. THESE ARE VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING NOT WOMEN GIVING THEIR CONSENT.

Kraft can add another mark to his legacy: taking advantage of human trafficking victims.

 

Patriots fans here have not defended anything.

 

Instead we are choosing to wait for the facts before judging.

I can respect the waiting for facts. And you might be. I am as well. But there’s other patriots fans who are adamantly denying and excusing this, at least 1 in this very thread.  That said, the fact the police allegedly have video evidence of multiple visits and sexual acts by Kraft, the judging can and will commence right away. The remaining facts and questions will likely only make matters worse for Kraft when those become public

The leap from 'paying for sex' and 'involved in human trafficking and knowingly soliciting under age girls' is what I'm referring to. 

 

Go ahead and judge away that there is evidence of multiple visits and video evidence. But the 'rushing to judgement before facts are known' and the 'he must have known' crowd need to take a step back...because once that narrative gets out, regardless of its level of truth, then there's no coming back from it and that simply isn't fair.

We do not know all of the facts, which is not surprising on the day something like this comes out.  It looks like he is only charged with solicitation and not human trafficking.  He may or may not have known there was trafficking going on.  

 

For what it is worth, Kraft is denying the involvement. 

 

For the most part Pats fans that I have seen on forums are not defending Kraft and some , like me and D13, would like to see how things pan out over the up coming days and weeks to see if we can get a better picture of things.

Agreed we don't know much yet.  This could be a simple case of him just trying to get some sex for money from an adult woman which while illegal isn't super huge.  

 

Or it could be him being involved in human trafficking or underaged prostitution which would be massive and would likely not only involve prison but also involve a forced sale of the Patriots.  

 

In that event, wouldn't everything just go to his son Jonathan?

I agree, we should wait until the investigation is done before making judgements.  Unfortunately, that is not how society is now, there is always a need for hot takes not matter the situation, that is what moves the needle.

 Sadly, innocent until proven guilty no longer exists in the public eye.

Most likely but I think it’ll depend on the exact depth of the issue. If it’s just the buying a hooker thing, then likely not, but if they somehow prove he’s involved in a human trafficking ring, I can see the league forcing it out of the Krafts hands completely. We’ll see.

I enjoyed reading all of these comments, pure entertainment :popcorn:. We do not know all the facts yet. As of now Kraft is just facing 2 charges of Soliciting Prostitutes. It's a Misdemeanor. So far he hasn't been charged with anything involving Human Trafficking. Human Trafficking is much worse. Still if he is guilty of Soliciting, what he did is Illegal and embarrassing. It will be interesting to see how this plays out regarding the law and the NFL. Never a dull moment with the Patriots it seems lmao

He was accused/alleged to have fathered the child of an actress he was routinely seen with and known to have been dating. However, I do believe is was AFTER his wife had died

They say there's a video of the 'act'.....its highly unlikely it wasn't him.

…..Its bad. He's got to plead guilty and face the heat.

 

  But I dont know what you say publically...going forward

It might be time to let someone else be the face of ownership

That wouldn't change anything except driving it deeper underground and raising the profits for the pimps/illegal organizations. Sex, drugs, liquor and similar vices can't be legislated out of existence ... you would have much more success going the other way and legalizing it.

That's true, but not everything that is illegal is necessarily "wrong", and not everything that is legal is necessarily "right".

It's a nice saying, but surely you know that is not reality. All illegal acts are not created equal ... not only are there varying degrees of illegality, some things that are technically illegal shouldn't be (by any reasonable standard) and some laws are so outdated they aren't even actively enforced. I know you can't really believe that it is that black and white.

    • Just avoid this website for about 30 seconds leading up to the pick. Not that hard to avoid this type of spoiler.
    • Fact - Dorsey put KC in a hole from a cap perspective Fact - Dorsey told Maclin via email that he was being released.  Fact - Dorsey was fired from KC Fact - KC went from ranked in the 20s offensively to the top 5 immediately after Dorsey was fired   Simply put, Dorsey didn't work out in KC. And firing someone via email is just *ic and cowardly. That is black and white.
    • You have a singularly unique viewpoint.   If only the real world was as black and white as you seem to think it is....   If only....  
    • If all are there, I take Wilkins 99% of the time and Simmons 1%. Like you've stated its unlikely though, so I'll go with Simmons (provided Dr's reports are good).  
    • I already pointed to 2 teams who got far more hosed this year than the Colts.  The Buccaneers and the Raiders.  Even the NFL came out and ADMITTED it was not a fair schedule.  So tell me, did they really care? Nope.  They had plenty of opportunity to pour over the schedules before they became public and make some adjustments.  They did not.  They have proven my point.  They do not care if schedules are unfair.   When I say to whine, just play your schedule, that refers to the difficulty this year of the teams we play and the locations of the games which are hard wired in and known to everyone the second the schedule comes out.  I am also not whining when I pointed to the schedule's order being particularly difficult with those three divisional games coming down the road.   Those are simply the teams hard wired in and the order, though not preferential, is not worth whining about.   It's a known reality you have to play all those teams in all those locations.     BUT.. and here is the massive distinction: The late night games and the nationally featured games are entirely and intentionally created all season.  Nobody denies this.   So for 10 of 13 seasons, they have INTENTIONALLY given us a horrendously unbalanced disadvantages, and they do not care.  The idea that they DO care at all about things like CTE is only because they don't want the lawsuits and they don't want the gravy train to be legislated by government to stop.  They don't want the PEOPLE to demand it.  Or for Moms to stop letting their hyper athletic kids to play football and instead guide them into other sports.  Of course soccer leads to more overall concussions per player worldwide at all levels, but the media simply doesn't care because the "world" game is off limits and the NFL is a big fat target to be taken down by a line of special interests in the USA.  It is a game that important to men and boys and often teaches them to work together for something bigger than themselves, to have discipline and focus, to stay out of trouble and put some effort into grades and it often gives kids without fathers in the home exposure to many father figures in the game, not just a head coach, but assistant positional coaches and coordinators, weight lifting/fitness coaches and team captains/leaders as well as peers who are more often doing the right things instead of the wrong things.  For whatever reason some would prefer to theorize, there are major forces out to destroy that lifeline for boys, young men and even full grown men.  But the NFL doesn't care about the health or those issues.  They only care that the supply of super freak athletes continues unabated and they don't care about fairness, equality or safety, they care about TV ratings (#1 show on every involved network) so those nearly insane rates keep growing and to keep butts in seats, gambling growing and thriving (wait til you see what is coming in that arena) and merchandise sales humming along.  If they have to screw the Colts and other teams along the way, it's no big deal to them.  If the refs just happen to screw the smaller markets at key moments of specific games to change who advances, well, that's just a happy coincidence that rings up a higher ticket on the cash machine.   And based on attitudes like "small markets like Indianapolis should be happy to just have a team" they have those people just where they want them.  Docile and willing to take any scraps they care to toss out.  That's how they con cities into terrible stadium deals (thank God Indianapolis representative are brilliant and have connected our convention business to the stadium literally to the stadium making us one of the top convention destinations in the world, but I digress).     Pointing out TRUTHS is not whining.  Pointing out and listing undeniable facts is not whining.  Whining about me doing that is whining.  Whining about me pointing out when your faux facts and belief in them as being naive is whining.   Not being able to tell the difference is also naive.  But alas.
